Remember Me


So I am a peephole
Into a windowless room
Where the sweat on the tiles
Is the only perfume
On the desk is a diary
And next to it a vase
The rose draws blood
And it drips on the lace

From Eliot WIth Love


Our conversation moves in circles
And so do the hands of the clock
We sound like we are saying something
But it's all only idle talk
Mel says love is spiritual
But some of us disagree
Some get a kick out of being kicked
Every beater needs a beatee

Wilderness Years


Days roll along
One into the other
All the time in the world, it seems
The next thing you know
There's one less day
And slightly taller weeds

Armistice Day


What would it take to end
All this fighting
What could we do to stop
All the war
It's been going on
Since the very first caveman
Since he figured out
What a club was for

Scary Guy at the End of the Hall


I got a dream in me
That nothing can quite kill
You may try to squash me
I know that's where you get your thrill
And I am gonna get myself up
And shake off these cliches
And I will see myself clear
Living in better days

Far Country


I see justice
Just out of view
Yeah, I see justice
Don't have much to do
But I got no worries
Why give a toss
I'm already long gone from here
And I don't feel a loss

Stockholm Syndrome


Out of left field
There came a sudden wind
Blew down our well-built fences
While the devil grinned
We were aghast
The end was here at last

A Proper Viking Funeral


I bleed real blood
Red as a your lips
It gushes out of me
In Technicolor strips
Can't hold it back
It is out of control
That's the way that it is
When you're a slave to your soul

Primitive Man


I like the way that the world
Revolves around me
I am at the center
Of my very own galaxy
I get to call the shots
I get to say what's cool
I am no idiot, no
I suffer no fool

Cattywampus


Now you must face your deepest fears
Or at the very least say
You're not afraid
If you do that
You're not just half way there
You are at the head of the parade

Walking Distance


There is nothing
Nothing out in the desert
And no man
No man needs nothing

Broken Things


Ah, well! for us all some sweet hope lies
Deeply buried from human eyes
And, in the hereafter, angels may
Roll the stone from its grave away

Woebegone


The good and the bad
The happy and the sad
All the living and the dead
It will stay with me
For eternity
My thoughts are a tornado
In my head

Better


Is this the way to live a life
Never think about the meaning
Then one day you wake up
And the whole world is careening
Well I'm no philosopher
Not Jean Paul Sartre
But it doesn't take a genius to know
You gotta have heart, miles of heart

Blue Skies Ahead


I look at a faded photo
I don't recall the time or place
There is some girl in blue jeans
I don't recognize the face

Brutal Beauty


We ought to write it down in a book
And put it on our shelves
'Cause the past is just a story
We tell ourselves

A Star Fell Down on Indiana


A star fell down on Indiana
Just like it did in the beginning of time
We all turned out to see what happened
Some of us laughed
Some of us cried
And together we held onto each other's hands
Until the last of us had died
